PART 104: Grimsby Career Mode-FIFA 17


UEFA Champions League-Matchday 4-Tuesday 31st October 2023
Grimsby Town (T.Buhagiar) 1 drew. Celtic (Zhang Yuhing) 1
KCOM Stadium, Hull

Ty Stedman-"Contrasting form isn't it. Domestically in the Premier League we are in some of the best form we've ever produced but our Champions League defence has been nothing short of abysmal so far. We just haven't been able to buy any luck.

Celtic got a cheap goal early on but Trent Buhagiar's screamer from outside the box drew us level before half-time. We had the better chances in the second half but it wasn't to be. We have a mountain to climb obviously to progress to the knockout stage but the Europa League is well within our reach. That's better than nothing I guess but tonight's result is a disappointing one."


Premier League-Matchday 11-Saturday 4th November 2023
Leicester City 0 def by. GRIMSBY TOWN (B.Traore x2 & M.Dembele) 3
King Power Stadium

Ty Stedman-"Again we've had to bounce back from a disappointing midweek result. The Champions League campaign has been poor by our standards but for the most part, a simple lack of luck has cost us dear. In the Premier League though it's the complete opposite.

Leicester is a tough ground to come to and again we showed up and just played an exciting brand, an attacking brand and really should have won 4 or 5-0 in the end. This team is clicking and the aim is nothing short of winning the league title. This form we're in is amazing."


Premier League-Matchday 12-Sunday 19th November 2023
GRIMSBY TOWN (B.Traore-PEN) 1 def. Everton 0
Blundell Park

Ty Stedman-"Relief. Our fans will know all too well what Everton can do. Last year they came here and won 5-0 and then on the last day they won to deny us the league title. Even this season they've managed to knock us out of the league cup. This was a massive win mentally for us.

Everton were always going to be a tough team to beat. The penalty helped our cause and we took a lead but unlike the last few Premier League games, we couldn't go on with it. Everton had a few worrying chances throughout that had me thinking that they'd comeback but we held on for a nervy win."


UEFA Champions League-Matchday 5-Wednesday 22nd November 2023
Olympique Lyon (W.Campanini) 1 drew. Grimsby Town (Oscar) 1
Parc Olympique Lyon

Ty Stedman-"It's a little bit hard to take, this result. We were on top of the world about five months ago, lifting the famous trophy in the middle of the San Siro. Here we are with a game still to go in the Group Stage and it's all over. Our trophy defence has come crashing down.

It's not all lost as we will go to the Europa League regardless of the final result in Naples but for us this is nothing short of a chance blown. We knew we had a target on our backs, we played some decent football at times but a couple games saw luck let us down and a couple games, we just weren't good enough. It's highly disappointing."
